Protein Content Could Tell the Tale of Wheat Prices This Harvest Season

Fri, 28 May 2010 5:28:02 CDT

Protein Content Could Tell the Tale of Wheat Prices This Harvest Season Oklahoma State University Grain Marketing Economist Dr. Kim Anderson believes that cash wheat prices will have a "three" in front of them as we go through the harvest season- and that how much lower they might go will depend on the protein content of the 2010 crop. If we find low protein tests the norm this season- there could easily be another twenty to thirty cents of downside in current cash wheat prices in the state.

Dr. Anderson also talked with Clinton Griffiths of SUNUP about the relationship of wheat prices to the strength of the US dollar. Earlier in 2010, Anderson saw little tie between Yankee greenbacks and bushels of wheat- but in recent weeks- a stronger dollar has been matched by lower wheat prices- a sign, according to Anderson, that current wheat price levels are very sensitive to wheat export movement.
